Just Do It! – a Quilters Journey
It’s said that the journey of a lifetime begins with a single step……find out how I fell off the cliff! From the humble beginnings making Barbie clothes (Ken went naked!) to designer, teacher and author, it’s been a fun filled bumpy road strewn with fabric, pins and thread. As quilters, we never tire of the journey….but where are we headed?
Sacred Cloth-Textiles of Faith
Join Susan on a journey of discovery while visiting many of the world’s religions to see how they use fabric, thread and textiles in their rituals, ceremonies and beliefs. A closer look at the history of our relationship with cloth can bring insight and understanding to all people of faith.
Accent on Angles-Easy Strip Set Quilts
Susan makes brilliant use of strip sets and angled cuts in these appealing projects, opening up exciting new design possibilities. See how the concept of stacking fabrics and inserting bold accent strips can achieve a refreshingly different look. You will be inspired to use these blocks in a variety of ways—in borders, quilt centers, repeat-block quilts, and more. Lots of ideas and lots of fun!
On the Surface — Design, Colour and Deliriously Fun Stuff
Painting, dyeing, printing, stamping, paint sticks….what’s it all about? This lecture is a great introduction to the wonderful world of Surface Design and all the possible methods of applying colour to cloth. You will look at your fabrics with a new vision!
